The Department of Occupational Therapy is dedicated to preparing the Occupational Therapists who will shape and lead the profession in the years to come. Our graduates are first and foremost Occupational Therapists, well-versed in the sciences and skills that enable clients to restore function and adapt to the new realities and limitations that follow life-altering events. The following program is offered through our Department:

Master of Occupational Therapy Program

The Master of Occupational Therapy program emphasizes an appreciation of the individual and imparts an understanding of cultural identities and responses.  Our graduates work to make the profession and its services available to all — and to eliminate the health disparities that exclude many from the level of care and participation they deserve. Students are admitted once a year.
